Mother Earth Paint Dresser Makeover

One of my friends asked me to help her paint her dresser. This time I tried out Mother Earth Paint. It works very similarly to Annie Sloan Chalk Paint. However, it is more natural.  

You do not need to prep the surface, however, she did, because she wasn't sure how she was going to paint the dresser at first. Sanding it made it soak up paint a lot more! 

We wanted to keep the keyhole hardware, so we taped over it and used an exacto knife to cut around the keyhole. 

We used 2 small sample sizes to cover the dresser. This paint can be watered down, and it can cover a little more!

To distress you can sand it or use handi wipes. The handi wipes need a little more rubbing, but leave a nice distressed look. Finally, I covered it with a wax.
